"The oval shape ... is certainly a primary structure, not the child of a geometric reduction to the essentials, but rather something that echoes more complex filigrees, and perhaps radical symbolic moods, rooted in a modern vicissitude spacing from Brancusi to Arp to Fontana. It is a moneme because the artist does not make it an assertion, rather unfolding its infinite spatial possibilities with a play of unlimited variations, repetitions, articulations, cadences, making the world a radiant fields [sic], in every sense, of plastic and visual energies".
